Online Support for Unpaid Carers in Newham

"How do I know if I'm a carer?" 

This is a question our Co-Founder Kyro also struggled to answer.

If you look after someone regularly, perhaps a parent, partner, child, sibling, or neighbour or friend, you are most likely a carer. And we're here to support you in your caring role.

 

We work with Newham Council to provide a range of free online services to support you, in addition to what is already on offer.

Connect with other carers

We’re by carers and for carers. This means that community and support from other carers is at the heart of what we do. You can connect with carers through our Facebook Group and meet other carers on our virtual cuppas. We use all of this to inform our weekly email support, so that we’re always addressing what’s important to carers right-now.

Speak to someone

If you struggle to find time to talk to someone about your caring role our Carer Support Team are available from 8am to 10pm, seven-days a week. You’ll speak with another carer about the things that matter to you.
